Encoding

Encoding is a way of translating between different formats. Like converting a Spanish recipe for cake into English.

Encryption

Encryption is a way of protecting data behind a secret. Like sealing a box of chocolate in a locked safe so your kids don’t find it.

Hashing

Hashing is a way of permanently converting from one recognizable thing to something uniform and simple. Like grinding a cow into a hamburger – you can always make a burger, but you can never put the cow back together again.
